Charities to boost digital skills with jargon free guide


According to a press release, Lloyd’s TSB’s new Digital Toolkit features an Enterprise IT Guide developed by e-skills, to help charities and businesses see the benefits of having a good online presence.

Recent research by Lloyds TSB Commercial and Optimisa found that only 4 in 10 charities are using the internet to increase fundraising.

The guide, although written by experts, is jargon free and easy to understand, containing valuable advice on how to raise funds and reduce costs. Other topics include social media marketing, website optimisation and cloud computing.

Matthew Perry, Director of Digital Business Banking at Lloyds Banking Group said:  “Research shows that organisations which have embraced digital capabilities report clear benefits, and there is a clear link between the digital maturity of business and its turnover growth. Our own research also demonstrates that there is a real need to provide SMEs with support to improve their online presence and digital skills – and that’s why we have worked with e-skills UK to develop a new digital toolkit for small businesses, opening up the rich resources they offer, to all our SME customers.”

If your organisation is looking to boost its online presence, follow this link to view the guide.
